sbs2011 owa ssl problem

Hello, we have a new single sbs2011 server, which we added an ssl certifficate to, which enabled us to log on remotely for OWA. This was working fine.

We have installed several updates to the server since the original comissioning,

However, just recently we are getting certificate errors when trying to log in to https://remote.domainname.co.uk. We can proceed, although advised not to, and we eventually get the logon screen. When we logon the OWA screen appears, and we can access e-mail OK.

However, when we try to connect to say the server, we get the following error.

This computer can't verify the identity of the RD gateway "remote.domainname.co.uk". It's not safe to connect to servers that can't be identified.

I notice that when I look at the certifficate details during the connection, it displays the microsoft self certiffied SSL not the purchased RapidSSL certifficate.

I realise that something has happened with the SSL certificate on our server, but as this was working, did not want to start "poking" around without consulting somone else first.

I have checked the SSL entries in both the Certifficates MMC console and the (personal and Intermediate), and the IIS - SSL section, and can see them all present.

If anyone could give me some assistance in how to troubleshoot this, I would be very much obliged.

Many thanks.
